Searching the SDK docs


For the searching the current SDK documentation, I would install the SDK docs locally. The local docs use a different search that works better.

To download a single installer for both the User Guide and SDK Guide:
http://www.autodesk.com/softimage-documentation

Just the SDK:

Local search results are much better than the online search:

  1. I know it’s an old hat, but couldn’t we just return to the old chm’s distributed with the application? Pretty please… đŸ˜‰
    I still can’t see much benefit to the online version, seeing for instance that the changes to the SDK for 2013SP1 haven’t yet found their way to the online SDK docs (for instance the sipyutils modification)

    • Before release, I got to test drive the new search, and it seemed pretty good. But something obviously got messed up and now it doesn’t work.
